CWA Chester

About the CWA Chester Chapter

A warm welcome to the CWA Chester page.

Our Chapter started in 2019 and after a couple of uncertain years due to Covid we were delighted to take ownership of two trishaws in early 2022 following generous donations from:

Cheshire West and Chester Crowdfunding Campaign

Cheshire Community Foundation

The Earl of Chesters’ Fund

The trishaws are based at Upton Dene Care Home in Upton by Chester and will be ridden in the lovely Countess of Chester Country Park.  The trishaws are for use by the care home and the local residents.

We hope that through awareness and further fundraising we will be able to expand the fleet of trishaws in Chester so this fabulous initiative is more widely available.  We strive to help to end loneliness and isolation in the community, to give the elderly freedom and fresh air, to help them reconnect with nature and the community and to help them ‘feel the wind in their hair!’.

 

VOLUNTEER WITH US!

We are now underway with pilot training and hope to be able to offer rides to the local community by June 2022. If you would like to volunteer as a pilot or are interested in other ways you may be able to help we would be thrilled to hear from you.

Please email chester@cyclingwithoutage.org.uk

We are a small community group of four volunteers.  We rely on donations and grants to cover the operational costs of providing this service; mainly insurance, trishaw maintenance, administration etc.
